MGMHD in Manhattan
Time Warner Cable of New York and New Jersey has added MGMHD to its lineup (Channel 796 here in Brooklyn). Basically that means a chunk of Turner Classic Movies' finest is now available in HD, along with pictures that don't often air on TCM, like less-than-classic Burt Reynolds movies and Dracula vs. Frankenstein. Some good stuff there, though I wish its site offered monthly, rather than daily, listings. I also noticed that all my premium movie channels (HBO, Max, SHO, Starz, etc.) now have HD equivalents. All good news--now, if only it could somehow be beamed into my consciousness, as the time to watch any of it is scarce.
